You know it when you find it… Well, if Josh Duhamel says this is an exclusive trailer for his upcoming rom-com titled Safe Haven, maybe we should give him a try. Lasse Hallström stands behind this drama which is already being described as an affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again. And that, my friends, is not a huge surprise, ’cause the whole thing is actually based on Nicholas Sparks‘ novel of the same name. Yeah, something like The Notebook meets Dear John, or whatever…
Hallström directs the movie from a script written by Dana Stevens, which centers on a mysterious young woman named Katie, who arrives in a small North Carolina town. That woman is, you already guess – Julianne Hough. She is determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into reluctant relationships.
Slowly, she gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. And that guy is Josh Duhamel, of course.
Katie begins to fall in love but dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love.
The rest of the cast includes David Lyons, Cobie Smulders, Scott Porter, Cullen Moss and Mike Pniewski, and don’t forget – Safe Haven opens on February 14th, 2013.
Until then – trust your heart to keep you safe!
